For over a half century, our clients—ranging from Fortune 100 multinational corporations to mid- and small-cap companies, partnerships, and entrepreneurs—have turned to this practice group to resolve their most pressing commercial challenges.
Today’s business environment is extraordinarily complex, and conflict is often unavoidable. We understand that companies and entrepreneurs need an experienced hand to help them avoid disputes before they arise, and to vigorously represent their interests when they do.
Our seasoned trial lawyers maintain an active, respected presence in courts and arbitral forums throughout California, and have represented both plaintiffs and defendants in nearly every kind of dispute a company is likely to encounter. This breadth of perspective not only makes us uncommonly effective but also frees clients from the pressure to settle, and allows them to make considered strategic decisions–including whether to take their cases to trial.
We also build and foster long-standing relationships with clients, so we understand their businesses, providing them with proactive legal counsel and practical, real-world advice. This has been key in our ability to maintain an unparalleled track record of success at the negotiation table and in the courtroom.
